after over two years, itunes no longer automagically rates my albums for me. i filed #23003546 on 06oct15, immediately closed as a duplicate of
#6171846. apparently #6171846 is still open but i've restarted itunes several times just for grins and the automagic ratings have not occurred.

12.6.1 adds the column 'iCloud download' to all list views. Grrrr
I have iTunes as a result of recent OS X 10.12.5 update. No issues at the moment. Used the combo updater to leapfrog to 10.12.5 after two APP STORE updates to 10.12.4 produced kernel panics on startup! Reverted to 10.12.3 from backup and waited until 10.12.5 was available. Not used to problems like this from Apple. No matter what you are updating..MAKE A BACKUP first to avoid big trouble when failure occurs!
